  • Standing order payments can only commence from 1st September.  There is no facility to pay standing order part way through any school term.

To reserve a seat for your child for the school year, please complete the ‘Home to School’ enquiry form below.

Each year, routes are reassessed depending on the number of children travelling from each stop. Routes and times may change as a result of this assessment. We ask that parents simply choose their nearest stop, and the child will be allocated accordingly. We will try to accommodate additional requests, but this is not guaranteed.

We review the routes yearly depending on the number of children who apply. We reserve the right to change the timetable to accommodate travel requirements. Your child will not necessarily travel on the same bus or route or at the same time as the previous year.

Applications received after the end of July will not be processed until the end of August. This means your child may not be able to get a space on a school bus and may not be able to travel until we can confirm this. If possible, we may be able to offer space on an alternative route on a temporary or permanent basis.  It is therefore essential that you make plans to take your child to school if we are unable to provide transport.

If we do not receive payment for a pass, or your payment to us is too late to be processed, your child will have to pay the daily fare in cash to the driver until payment is made.


If your child’s return to school is dependent on exam results, please register them.

Please ensure both parent/guardian and child read and understands our Home to School Terms & Conditions which includes the pupil Student Code of Conduct whilst using home to school transport.  Please see the updated T&C’s below.

Please see below the bus timetable and Student Code of Conduct.

QR PASS UPDATE – October 2023

It has been brought to our attention that some students are travelling on the peak school time service 37 buses to and from Tuxford Academy using their QR code bus passes, most drivers have been allowing this to happen when in actual fact they shouldn’t be.  Passes can only be used on X37s at school time, not the public service 37 buses. If a student is travelling out of peak time for example following after school activities they can then use their QR code to travel on the service 37 as the X37 does not run at these times.

We understand if students are choosing the quieter service 37, this is not a problem, but payment for these journeys needs to be made on the bus. If you have purchased a QR code for your child but they would prefer to use the service 37 instead, please contact us and we can refund your pass.
